Teaching Peace provides restorative justice services, training and consultation. Our restorative circles bring together criminal offienders with their supporters, victim(s) of their crime with their supporters, and members of the community. Facilitators guide the circle through a process of exploring what happened, what harm was done, and what needs to be done to repair that harm. Contracts and made and, in most cases, if the offender completes all items on the contract there are no further criminal charges. 94% of offenders complete their agreements; of those, 88% have no rearrest by local police within a one year period. Satisfaction ratings by group: 97% for victims, 96% for offenders, 98% for community members.
